Favorite eye care product: One-day disposable contact lenses. I started wearing contact lenses at 11 years old, when contact lenses were to last a year (or more). Contact lenses were super expensive for just one pair, plus cleaning was tedious. Today, I wear a fresh pair everyday, and enjoy crisp vision without the maintenance.
The ophthalmic profession is a second career for me. I received an honorable discharge after serving as a paratrooper in the United States Army for 13 years. During that time I deployed overseas to Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kuwait and Iraq.
